Aerosmith Legend Joe Perry Collapses During Hollywood Vampires Show
The rocker is in stable condition after passing out while playing at a Vampires gig Sunday.
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry was rushed to the hospital Sunday night after collapsing onstage while performing with his side-group Hollywood Vampires.
Fan video of the performance captured the 65-year-old rocker slowly sitting on a riser before turning and stumbling off stage at a show in Coney Island, Brooklyn.
Perry reportedly fell unconscious after leaving the stage and had to be revived by medics on the scene before being taken to a hospital in Brooklyn. He remains in stable condition.
Hollywood Vampires features Perry on guitar, Alice Cooper on vocals—and Johnny Depp, for some reason—and Cooper told the audience at Ford Ampitheater that Perry had been “very sick before [the] show,” reported Rolling Stone.
For fans concerned about Perry’s condition, Alice Cooper tweeted some reassurance.

A rep for Perry later told Rolling Stone that Perry was “stable and resting” and “doing well.”
Thanks to all of the fans reaching out and asking about Joe. He is stable right now, with family and is under the best care.
